Berlin, just before Christmas. Relationship problems. The situation between Toma and Marie has come to a standstill. But Toma doesn't want to accept it.

After being injured in an accident, the two take a trip to visit old friends in Italy, in the hope of refreshing their relationship. But the old friends are not who they used to be and, in the meantime, have become involved in very unsettling and mysterious rituals with another couple. While Toma is plagued with nightmares during their stay, Marie tries to find out more about what is really going on.

What was intended as a romantic trip to the idyllic countryside soon turns into a frightening psychotrip.
